There has been a bit of mystery surrounding the appearance of the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story with fans eagerly waiting to get a first glimpse of the film. News has just broken that the trailer will not début during the Superbowl on Sunday as rumoured, but during Good Morning America on Monday morning, meaning we'll get first eyes on the trailer some time in the early afternoon in the UK.

The Hollywood Reporter suggested only yesterday that the trailer would appear in the Superbowl ad break but it seems that ticketing service 1iota let the following slip earlier:

It seems likely that a TV ad spot of some kind will show up during the Superbowl half-time, which will be instantly poured over for clues by hungry fans.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
